Alphabet Inc. hopes to set the minds of their suburban Phoenix riders at ease, as they initiate new processes to be followed while concerns of contracting the Coronavirus remain on the rise. Waymo, in addition to their old procedures, have added extra efforts to clean and sanitize the hundreds of Chrysler Pacifica minivans multiple times a day. Simultaneously, Waymo offers a help center that concerned riders can be in contact with.
